Our President's Message

Hey everyone!! My name is Caroline Pogostin and I am honored to serve as the Panhellenic President this year. A few things about me. I am a third year student from Dallas, TX, I am a Biological Sciences major, and my favorite movie is either The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement or Surf’s Up.

 

Let’s take it back to the beginning. Many moons ago, in 2019, I was a Pi Rho Chi. That is when I truly fell in love with the Panhellenic Community here at Davis. All of our chapters are amazing and filled with such beautiful and unique people. Last year I served on the Panhellenic Executive Board as the Vice President of Recruitment. It was a remarkable experience that I wouldn’t trade a million dollars for. I got to meet so many strong and confident women who made me grow as a leader and as a person. 2020 was a wild ride with recruitment being virtual and classes being remote, but it was a once in a lifetime experience. Helping create an entire new type of recruitment and the challenges it brought expanded what I thought I was capable of. It really changed my life in the best possible ways! 

 

At UC Davis, our council is made up of 7 executive officers and 10 delegates, one from each of our 9 NPC chapters and 1 associate chapter. These officers are responsible for all the duties of Panhellenic such as recruitment, academics, philanthropy, and inter-greek relations. The delegates are then tasked with making decisions that affect the entire Panhellenic community.  

 

The Panhellenic Community here at Davis is truly one of a kind. We have so many exceptional people who come from many different backgrounds in all of our chapters. Our community celebrates everyone's different perspectives, ideas and contributions, not only to their own chapter, but to Panhellenic as well. The Panhellenic Executive Council strives to create a positive environment where everyone feels welcome and accepted while also trying our best to create productive change in our Greek Community. 

 

If you are thinking about joining a Panhellenic chapter, I strongly encourage you to do so! You will meet so many people, make so many friends and have so many experiences that you will take with you beyond your years here at UC Davis! 

 

Love, 

 

Caroline Pogostin
